We Hang Christmas Lights --- Holiday Lights?
Happy Birthday Jesus Christ!
The origin of hanging Christmas Lights have been forgotten or never even known by the mass public. The original Christmas Light display was of all things just a publicity stunt by Thomas Edison during the Christmas of 1880. The months befor Christmas, Edison had pretty well figured out his incandescent light bulb invention.
Although the electric Christmas light would not become commonplace until years
after Thomas Edison first created the incandescent light bulb, his invention spelled doom
to the candle-lit tree. In 1879, watching the world’s first truly functional light bulb give
off 40 hours of continuous light, Edison knew he would be a rich man. While Edison is
mostly remembered for his scientific genius, he also had a knack for making a buck.
During the 1880 Christmas season, he constructed an eight-mile underground wiring
system in order to power a grand light display on the grounds of his Menlo Park factory.
Situated along the railroad that passed between Manhattan and Philadelphia, Edison’s
light display so enraptured passers-by that one reporter labeled him “the enchanter.” The
light show was a sensationalist bit of self-promotion and part of a bid to gain a contract to
power Manhattan with electricity.23 It was the first time (but hardly the last) that
Christmas sentiment was used as a shrewd marketing tool. In 1900 retail stores began
stringing lights in their windows, taking advantage of Edison’s tactics and starting a trend
that has lasted until the present day.
In 1882, Edison displayed the first electrically-lit Christmas tree in the New York
City home of his friend and the Vice President of the Edison Electric Company, Edward
Johnson. The tree sat atop a motorized box that spun it around as eighty red, white and
blue lights blinked on and off to the delight of Johnson’s guests.25 Powered by an Edison
generator in the city, Johnson’s tree soon garnered media attention. An 1884 New York
Times article expressed the excitement many people felt for the new invention:
So from edison I draw that We hang Christmas Lights and NOT Holiday Lights. I don't beleive in redefining facts for political correctness, other reasons to include all. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays but we don't hang holiday lights just Christmas Lights.
